Product Notes

\'The term \'singer-songwriter\' usually conjures images of acoustic strummers delivering folky or brooding narratives. But Brian Bassett\'s straight-ahead rock tunes - which call to mind expansive fare like early Radiohead, Oasis, and Matthew Sweet\'s 100% Fun - are made to be swathed in thick guitars and lush production. His songs take a direct, simple path to the heart, not to the intellect and not hitched to any trend. On last year\'s \'Rock and Roll\' LP, Bassett came off like a man in search of an arena, avoiding poetic platitudes and complex rumination and glorying in big, breathless love-rock, earnestly direct anthems and throbbing melodic hooks. Bassett was back in the studio recently, so let\'s hope that we soon see a new album packed with his grand rock intentions.\' \'He\'s in the spirit of power-pop tunesmiths from another age, a brand of unadorned, straight-up love rock uncluttered by pretension and perfectly out-of-step with his generation.\' Erik Hage - Metroland \'After one listen, Brian\'s songs already seem familiar, they\'re just that catchy. When I heard his CD, some of those songs grabbed me from the first note; he sounds great on the radio.\' Jason Keller - WHRL/Channel 103.1 DJ \'. . . a roiling, melodic wall of crunch, snarl and grumble . . .\' \'. . . an unabashed, unironic, straight-up collection of big, throbbing love rock . . .\' \'. . . hooky as hell (and thankfully devoid of irony) . . .\' \'. . . The rich guitars tumble, grind and wheel like early Radiohead or the concert version of Oasis . . .\' Best New Solo Musician 2003 - Metroland.
